Surprise police checking burning car in desert

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Surprise say they are investigating the discovery of a burned vehicle in the desert with up to three dead bodies inside.

They say they received a call around 3 p.m. Monday after a vehicle on fire in the area of 219th Avenue and Sun Valley Parkway.

Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Donovan says the car fire has been extinguished and it appears there may be as many as three bodies inside the vehicle.

Donovan says no further information is immediately available.

Television footage shows a burned-out pickup truck in a remote desert area with a yellow tarp covering the vehicle's bed area in the back.
